Narratives, notes, diary entries, and all things written by contemporary American artist Beck Metzbower, an East-Coast mom of three, lover of Oreos (with organic peanut butter!), and obsessive-extraordinaire of all things texture.

My Current Artist Statement

Nine letters tucked snugly in my pocket.

They journeyed through cold mountains, green hills, and rainy plains to meet me.

Given, never taken.

One day, I stumbled and they fell out.

Scattered through colourful valleys.

Windswept through quilted pastures.

Adrift down an icy creek.

I followed, desperate to retrieve my letters.

Until I snatched them back in a concrete hall with inked stamps and wooden stands and angry eyes.

And then I tucked them back safely into my creased fists.

All six consonants and three vowels.
